The Belarusian national ice hockey team (Belarusian: Зборная Беларусі па хакеі з шайбай; Russian: Сборная Белоруссии по хоккею с шайбой) is currently ranked 11th in the world by the IIHF in their 2018 World Ranking. The team is controlled by the Belarus Ice Hockey Federation. Arguably, the greatest moment in Belarusian hockey history was the victory over Sweden in the quarter-finals of the 2002 Winter Olympics, where the team ultimately finished fourth. Belarus has 4,968 players in their national pool (0.05% of the total population). At the 2005 and 2006 World Championships their coach was Glen Hanlon, who brought the best-ever result in the IIHF World Championship – 6th place in 2006. He was succeeded by Curt Fraser, who led the team in 2007 and 2008. Hanlon returned to coach the team for the 2009 World Championships in Switzerland.
